  • Loved this. It's close to Edinburgh. The great boat team take you on a cruise to an island mentioned in the Shakespeare stories. The island is like something from Enid Blyton's famous five adventures. There are seals. The boat is fantastic with big windows and an open deck. Dress warm. There is a cafe when you return. Free Parking Proper nice day out. I had to go by car because when I tried to go by bus from Edinburgh it took a long time so I missed the boat.
  • Went on their 90 minute boat trip along the Forth and under the three bridges. The commentary on board was a nice added touch and kept us interested throughout. You are also likely to get a glimpse of some seals as it passes by an island that they often reside on.
